Over at the ARM Blog, Andrew Sloss writes that the ARM approach to Big Data and HPC sets out to maximize efficiency by not over-designing any particular component.
The next era of systems will follow a-build-what-you-want style. By allowing the targeting of a SoC (System-on-Chip) to solve specific problems – one solution doesn’t fit both Big Data and compute. A SoC can be targeted to optimize the power-performance for Big Data or HPC utilizing common infrastructure and components and leveraging the vast software ecosystem.
